Hollywood dominated Bollywood as Disney’s latest animated sequel, Frozen 2, showed huge on the second day while the multi-starrer, Pagalpanti, struggled at the box office.
John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz, Urvashi Rautela, Kriti Kharbanda and Saurabh Shukla starrer Pagalpanti received lukewarm response from its trailer which led to its poor occupancy in the morning shows across India on the first day.
The comedy-drama received thumbs down from both critics and the paying audience as per BookMyShow.com but still showed some growth in the evening and night shows, collecting Rs 7.10 crore on its first day at the ticket window.
On the second day, Pagalpanti grew with 15-20% with a collections of somewhere between Rs 8-8.5 crore (as per early estimates) bringing the 2 days to Rs 15-16 crore. This is disappointing considering the huge budget of Rs 85 Crore (Production Cost: 73 Crore, Prints & Advertising Cost: 12 Crore). Pagalpanti is directed by Anees Bazmee and is produced by Panaroma Studios.
Disney’s Frozen 2 became one of the best opening for an animated film in India with Rs 3.50 crore and has already beaten the lifetime number of Frozen which was around 2.90 crore released in 2013.
As per early estimates, the earnings of Frozen 2 nearly doubled on the second day with an estimate of Rs 7 crore, bringing the 2 days total to Rs 10.50 crore. Sunday should be fruitful as well considering the glowing reviews it has received from the paying audience as per BookMyShow.com
